Doors & Drawers

Sometimes I feel like a naive child. When we walked through our house before buying it, I thought: "We can paint this house. No problem!" It's not that the project wasn't doable. It's just taken WAY longer than expected ... mostly because of the doors, drawers, and trim. So time-consuming!
For instance, our little hallway has seven doors in it. Yes, seven! And since this is an old house, we have to assume that everything has lead paint on it ... meaning, we must take extra care in the painting prep (wet sanding instead of dry).

The basement has been very handy as a work area. Would have been to cold to paint in the garage this time of year.
The space isn't exactly tall man friendly, but he's surviving. :-)
